Afraid To Die (Selena Alvarez / Regan Pescoli) [Hardcover]

I've finished "Afraid to Die" the 4th book in her Selena Alvarez and Regan Pescoli series by Lisa Jackson.

Product Description

The town of Grizzly Falls is on edge, and Detective Selena Alvarez is no exception. A string of terrifying murders has been solved, but a new nightmare is about to unfold. Two women are missing — both of whom Selena knew. In a small town like Grizzly Falls, that’s no surprise. But when their bodies are found, frozen solid and deliberately displayed, Selena is shocked to the core. Each victim wears a piece of her jewelry.

Selena’s partner, Detective Regan Pescoli, and the entire department are on the case, as is P.I. Dylan O’Keefe — a man Selena got too close to once before. But this killer already knows too much about the mistakes Selena has tried to outrun. The secrets of her past are coming to the surface, one by one. And soon a madman bent on revenge will show her just how much she has to lose …

My Review: 

This book opens a year later after the end of "Born to Die" and we learn the events that has shaped Selena into who she is.  Regan is still battling and arguing with her two children and parents can relate to her situation.  We also see both their relationships developing and deepening with the men in their lives and the Christmas rituals around the police station.

A serial killer has claimed two women and leaving their naked bodies encased in a block of ice.  He is displaying them in the same manner and seems to be taunting Selena by leaving personal items at the scene of the crimes.  He is leaving a message and is threatening to her since she knew both victims.

We learn a secret about Selena that she doesn't want anyone knowing about - her long lost son she gave up visits her house and old boyfriend and partner Dylan O'Keefe a PI comes back into her life.

This book is another nail biting and thrilling mystery with a gruesome killer.
